TAPE IS CUT: Likely edited out Glenda talking to Sherry after Brandy went to get her.
G: I’m gonna have to get a new phone. I hate all this static.
MJ: Oh, you have static?
G: Yeah. And I don’t know what causes it. I don’t know if it’s the cord, the phone or what it is. But, it just aggravates me so much, I’m getting a new phone.
MJ: (Laughing) It might be the cord
G: Well, I was thinking that. I even tried to change. I tried to use the cord, ya know, from the other room because this one has some little nicks in it and still, it still has static. So I’m thinking, “It’s got to be the phone.”
G: I’ll find a new one.
MJ: (Laughing) Brandi comes to me and she says, “There’s another lady on the phone and she’s the sweetest.” (Laughing) I think she (I)
G: (Laughing) (I) she sounds (I). I’ve never talked to her before.
MJ: She’s a cutie pie. She’s Jackie’s little girl. (I) She was in my commercial, that LA Gear commercial.
G: Oh she was?
MJ: And she was in the video, “Time to Remember.” She was a doll. She was soooo pretty.
MJ: She’s a good actress. Let me see what time it is.
G: Well, I was expecting your call.
MJ: Hold on a second, okay?
